about

One expects a set of tracks with the title Detroit to reflect the current state of a struggling city through rough or downtrodden musical expressions of a former industrial and commercial powerhouse. Calima Shatiday expresses the opposite. Naming a track for the city’s historical landmark Belle Island, Calima Shatiday captures the sadness and beauty of a city trying to make a comeback. For example, Extended Stay expresses an upbeat tempo that still maintains the coolness one imagines Detroiters still possess. The mellowness of Laughing in Southfield, a neighboring city of Detroit, captures the essence of a thriving suburban landscape. On Nothing But Land, Calima Shatiday tells the story of a city scrambling for a new identity that fuses island rhythms with the soul of Motown.
